    Has anyone else tried them?I bought around 8 months ago,it worked for a bit was ok not great.Then it quit and I sent it back in,didn't hear anything for couple months.They finally said they mismarked it and they sent me another one.It didn't take very good pics at all especially night pics.I sent them samples and have been waiting a couple months for some upgrade that should improve flash.

    You're having all sorts of problems finding a decent camera! Wish I could help but my luck hasn't been great either. I got a Moultrie a couple of years ago and had to send it back several times. They gave me brand new ones each time I sent one back but it took several tries before I ended up with one that works. I've had that one a couple of years now. I had a Cuddelink for 1 year before it broke. Replaced it with a Browning StrikeForce that I've had out a week.

    Browning or Bushnell for affordable cameras. Reconyx if you're Daddy Warbucks. :)

    I have no exp with the brand listed....thus far my favorite I have tried for under $100 is Browning...I set mine on video with Lithium batteries and have been real pleased thus far.... I consider a $100 cam a success if you get 2 years out of them. Most budget minded cams simply are a years use and done...from my experiences.

    I bought one but don't want any more. I had trouble with mine and had to send it back. They did fix it and last time I checked it was working, but I'm spoiled on Reconyx.

    One problem is the tiny screens on the Exodus are hard for me to see in bright sunlight. I can read others just fine but not that one.

    I have run everything from $28 tasco's to $500 Reconyx. They each have their pluses and minuses. Most will take passable daytime pictures - for a little while. Quite a few are greatly lacking at night. Tasco takes a decent daytime pic, generally a poor nighttime pic, and has been very unreliable for me - thus, it is not a useable camera - for me. Reconyx take great pics and have good longevity and customer service. But, I run about 20 cameras - some on my own property, some on public ground, and some on bear baits on a lease two hours away. There is something about strapping $10,000 to trees for anyone or anything to steal or destroy - makes them unusable for me, also. I have had ok success with Moultrie, cuddeback, bushnell, and Browning. I have tried others that I would say I have not even had OK success with. The camera that works best - for me - is a Browning Strikeforce. Good daytime pics, passable nighttime pics, decent battery life - $140, and have never had one quit working (except if they went under water) - some now over four years old. You have to figure out what is best for you.

    I have 1 exodous and it has worked fairly well. Night time photos are not the strong suit. Daytime photos are fine, and video is sufficient. I care most about reliability...and it has been good for 2 full seasons. I’m done w/ Bushnell. I think I have a collection of over 20 that died. On average, they lasted about 15 months. I figure I’ve got a lifetime supply of decoys....
    Run 2 Reconyx and a pile of older Coverts and misc. Browning’s. Browning’s take better photos/video but older Coverts have been notably more reliable. My two new Coverts have both had issues. Rencoyx just keep working but are way too expensive given how many cameras I run, and how frequently they sprout legs.
